Some things in our lives are simply beyond our control, but we still let them drive us crazy. We need to learn to let go ASAP in order to save our energy to use it for more worthy causes.
The only thing you really have control over is yourself. You can take control and decide what choices you are going to make, how you are going to react and act. That’s it though, so don’t even try to go any further, you”ll just frustrate yourself.
For one – change. Of course, change is one of the worst things that happens in life. But from another perspective, it’s also the most beautiful part of life. Appreciate the way that every day is a new day and that anything could happen. You can’t make change slow down, you can’t avoid it, but you can embrace it and go with the flow.
Some mornings, you’ll wake up and have tons of rain or snow. You won’t be able to go to the beach like you planned and you”ll be so angry and upset. But don’t let those feelings ruin your day, you have no control over the weather, so just make the most of it. Move around your schedule and plan for something that might even be better.
Then when it comes to traffic, you should just always be prepared to face it. You can of course try to find alternative routes, and that’s great. But sometimes, you just have to accept the fact that traffic will be out of control. Waiting in traffic sucks, but if you change your mindset, it can make it an entirely different experience. You’ll get there when you get there.
When it comes to the past, that’s history that already written. It can be changed, and is out of your control. Hopefully however, that you’ve learned lessons from your past mistakes. The past can hurt it, but the more you hold onto it, the more it will sting you. The future, just like the past is also not in your control. You can try making a long-term plan, but things don’t always go to plan. Your dreams and passion may even change over time, and that’s great.
It’s also important to understand that we can’t control other people’s happiness. As much as we want those we care about to be happy, sometimes, there is nothing we can do to change that. That’s only up to them.
It’s time to let go of what you can’t control.
